The Universal Church of God (Igreja Universal do Reino de Deus) promotes Word-Faith teachings, with a particular emphasis on the 'seed-faith' doctrine that is at the root of the prosperity gospel. (Want something from God? Give money. Want more? Give more money.) Since its theology and practices are far outside those of mainstream, biblical Christianity, this movement is considered to be theologically a cult of Christianity.

Prosperity Teaching -- also known as positive confession, health and wealth, or the name it and claim it doctrine -- in essence is a faith-based scam.
